Vianna Davila joined the San Antonio Express-News in 2002 as a reporter for what was then the paper's community news section, Neighbors.

Davila left the paper in 2007 to pursue her master's in journalism-documentary at the University of California at Berkeley. Her thesis film, "In His Blood," won the prize for best short documentary at the San Antonio Film Festival in 2009.

Shortly after graduation from Berkeley, she returned to the Express-News to cover general assignments, the city's Spanish colonial missions and to produce videos for the paper's website,

Since January 2011, Davila has covered transportation for the Express-News. She previously taught journalism classes at Texas A&M University-San Antonio and joined the Texas State faculty in an adjunct position in 2014.
